Lisa O'DonnellLong-time lecturer Lisa O’Donnell was honored with the CEE Excellence in Academic Service Award for her work with M.Eng. students on their projects in high-performance structures and geotechnical projects, and with Course 1 seniors on their capstone projects. Nominations include the following comments: “While many other professors gave us the tools we needed to succeed, it was Lisa who showed us how to put them all together and become engineers.” “Having Ms. O’Donnell meet with us on a weekly basis to help guide our design projects was a privilege. She had very insightful opinions which allowed our design group to make a very creative and interesting structure.” “Lisa was a great mentor … She not only brought valuable experience to our discussions, but she was also a kind and understanding guide who helped me manage my stress level as I navigated the turmoil of MIT’s curriculum.”
